...owned by Thomson (for hardware anyway) and slapped on any number of
cheapo low-end gadgetry. It's an absolute freakin' crime.

Well, actually, the old as modified by some marketing type is new again.

BEWARE of this unit. It is my understanding that it uses
0.150-inch-wide tape -- as in cassette tape (with the assumption that
the track format is the same as cassettes).

Therefore, it requires special reels and special tape to use.

It will not play quarter-inch tapes--at least as I understand it.

Also, remember, RCA is not the company it once was. It is now just a
brand name.
